All of Ryan Murphy’s TV Shows

It’s easy being a fan of Hollywood multi-hyphenate Ryan Murphy because it feels like there’s always a new Ryan Murphy show to watch. It’s difficult being a fan of the producer, director, and writer because there are so many shows to watch and they’re all on different channels or streaming services or part of different anthology cinematic universes and like…HOW many of these shows is Evan Peters in?! To help us all be better organized (particularly in light of the 2023 Golden Globes today, where Murphy is getting the Carol Burnett Award), here’s a comprehensive list of every Ryan Murphy TV show in one place.

With a rotating cast and new settings/subjects every season (Murderhouse, asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke, Cult, Apocalypse, 1984, Double Feature, NYC), this is easily Murphy’s most enduring series.

This anthology series mixes murder and courtroom drama to tell true-crime stories (The People v. OJ Simpson, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Impeachment) from recent history. So far, all three seasons have taken place in the 1990s. Interesting, eh?

I mean, allegedly, this is an ongoing series. Are we ever really getting that second season? People sure meme about it a lot, but I’m skeptical. Betty and Joan might be it, folks.

Pose (2018 to 2021)

This series about the house music and ballroom scene might quietly be Ryan’s best, IMO. It’s more intersectional and less cynical than some of his other shows. It has critical acclaim and shelves of awards to boast. It broke barriers for trans performers in Hollywood. Pose rules!

I genuinely would watch a dozen seasons of this show, an ultimately optimistic alternate history of moviemaking with big theater kid energy, but alas. It was a miniseries.

This miniseries about megalomaniac fashion designer Halston won Ewan McGregor an Emmy but otherwise went under the radar. It was fine! Pretty good even! But there wasn’t any murder, and Ryan Murphy fans seemed eager for more murder. They got plenty of that in 2022.

turns out, Dahmer—Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story will be an anthology series about IRL serial killers. Just what we need, more true crime on television. What’s the difference between this and AmericanCrime Story, you ask? This is a Netflix series. The other isn’t.

Murphy’s sense of humor did not exactly gel with the network that gave us The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 rockand The GoodPlace. Honestly, I’m not surprised.

This show had such a profound effect on pop culture that I always forget it was only two seasons.

This feels like such a normal television show that I honestly forget it’s a Ryan Murphy show, like, all the time. I also feel like it’s a brand-new show, when in reality it has been on for six seasons! That went by so fast!

Dang, anything else?

Sure, there are Murphy odds and ends. He made a TV movie adaptation of three plays: The Normal Heart on HBO, The Boys in the Band on Netflix, and the musical The Prom on Netflix. There are some Murphy shows in development that we still don’t know a whole lot about, like a series adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize–winning Broadway musical A Chorus Line (wild idea, if you ask me, but go off, Ryan) and anthologies that sound like cheap Walt Disney World resorts called American Love Story and American Sports Story. He’s also produced some documentaries and other movies for Netflix. He’s never not working! If we can take anything from this, it’s that.
